patio design. Saturday , January 06th , 2018 - 04:08:23 AM
The goal of your patio design scheme is to create outdoor extension rooms which are unique, lovely and very useful for your planned family and social activities. It should project a warm, cozy, comfortable and friendly atmosphere which blends with the architecture and natural landscape ambiance of your home. Your design should equip the patio with amenities and accessories such as a lounge, pool, couch, dining sets, fireplace, patio umbrellas, awnings, bar/grill, night lighting, gazebos, etc. If your resources can manage, you can incorporate waterfalls, fountains, flower beds, arbors and pergolas so that you always have beautiful views while doing some meditation and relaxing activities. What your design should perfectly achieve is a patio which can serve as your own backyard leisure and retreat resort for your family to enjoy.
"How will I use my patio?" Other than budget this is the most important question to ask yourself. If you plan on entertaining, you may consider seating walls around portions of your patio for overflow seating or an outdoor bar. If you have children you may want to invest in a fire pit area, either a portable or built-in. These are great to spend quality time with your children. Do you like to grill out? Perhaps adding a BBQ grill station or outdoor kitchen might be a nice addition. However you choose to use your patio, you need to convey these uses to your designer so they can incorporate them into the patio design. Make sure your designer draws your patio design to an identifiable scale. Have them draw in your patio furniture and accessories so you can get an idea if, and how, they will fit on your patio. These questions will help you decide what size of patio you need to install. Remember, bigger doesn’t mean more functional. Also, keep in mind, if your wants exceed your budget, using brick or concrete patio pavers will allow you to seamlessly add on later.
Decide how you want to use the patio. Is the patio mainly for alfresco dining or sunbathing or relaxing with a book or all three? The intended use will dictate the size and location of the patio. A patio mainly for dining is best placed where there is some shade so that diners can keep cool on warmer days and seek the sun when the weather is cooler. A patio intended mainly for sunbathing needs to be in a spot where it’s sunny all day. If you want young children to safely use the patio, it needs to be somewhere you can see them from the house.
